Objects of Affection [Interview, Giveaway]



"Objects of Affection" is a one-of-a-kind shop ran by Lani. The cute Recycled Type Pendants are what first caught my eye in this shop. I enjoyed reading the various quirky and random phrases on them. Lani also creates other jewelry, night lights, paperweights, magnets, antique bottle art, as well as soldered art. I love the vintage air surrounding Objects of Affection. Let us find out some more! 

What do you like to do for fun? 
For fun I like to hang out with my husband, two kids, two dogs and friends…and just do whatever. I also like to take pictures, go to auctions, and dig for antique bottles.
If you were an animal, what creature do you think you would be? 
If I were an animal I would be a bird or a butterfly. I dream of flying!
What can we expect to find when stepping into "Objects of Affection"? 
You can expect to find vintage one-of-a-kind pendants, kitsch whimsical night lights, quirky soldered shadow boxes, photos, and much more…you never know what medium I’ll try next!
Please name a few adjectives that describe your work. 
Nostalgic, vintage, kitsch, whimsical, quirky, one-of-a-kind 

How did you get started in making your creations? 
I first got started after browsing through one of my Home Companion magazines and stumbling across the site www.SallyJean.com. I loved the fun soldered charms and decided that I would like to learn how to solder. I then taught myself by watching many tutorials on-line, and the rest is history!
Do you have a personal favorite of your pieces? 
I love the bluebird night light and it has been one of my best sellers. I also really enjoy creating soldered shadow boxes; in fact my “skeletons in your closet” shadow box was included in the 2009 October / November issue of Cloth Paper Scissors!
What do you look to for inspiration? 
I always find myself drawn to vintage books and illustrations, the colors in them are always so wonderful.

In a typical day, what do you get up to? 
My typical day starts by getting my two kiddos ready and off to school. Next I check my e-mail and then it’s off to the studio to play, I usually spend about 5 ½ hours filling orders and creating new designs.
Is there anything that you would like to add? 
Thanks for taking the time to let me share a little about myself. I would also like to add that I love to create custom pieces…so please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have a piece you would like me to create!
